      JewishGen panel discussion:

    • -Ungheni actually was an interesting border town and the train in my time, went from say Kishinev to Bucharest, in Ungheni, they changed the rail because itís a different size of a rail, and they had a crane that they would put a wagon in the air and they would move. I wasnít in Romania, I never crossed the border, because I was not allowed, but my parents went to immigrate to Israel, through Romania and I saw that from far, how that was. It took probably a couple of hours to do it for the whole train.
